For the week of Sept. 27, 2020:
An election like no other is happening in British Columbia, as Premier John Horgan made the ultimate gamble to go to the polls on Oct. 24.
The NDP leader spent much of the first week trying to sell the idea of an early election to voters, while BC Liberal Andrew Wilkinson and Green Sonia Furstenau said Horgan could not be trusted because of the power grab. They both accused Horgan of putting the health of B.C. at risk.
This happens six months after unprecedented teamwork in the Legislature.
